Good article.

It seems a lot of people overlook the fitness aspects of shooting.

I definitely get a lot of benefit from take a similar approach to a shooting event as a I do to an endurance event such as a marathon.

Thanks for posting the link.

Good article.

I go to the gym 4-5 days a week but I hate cardio. About the only cardio I do is my local USPSA matches .

Glad to hear I'm no the only one.

I run 5 to 6 days a week 3 to 3.5 miles at a shot in 35 minutes. I did this to lose weight and to get in better shape for three gun. I was 298 pounds last August and at a match I broke a folding chair. I knew it was definately time to take the weight off. I am down to 235. I actually got down to 224 then the holidays hit and I back tracked to 235 but now I am holding and trying to get back on track. I can attest that I do better at the matches especially on the rifle stages where breathing used to be a killer. As for cardio I actually like it now. I hated it the first week I started running or should I say sauntering. I could barely jog at 4 miles an hour now on a good day I can do 7.4 miles per hour. I usually average 6.6. I need to start weight training just been to lazy to get that going.

Great article. Thanks. Very clearly written and separated.
